The feud also caused the fights which led to Romeo’s banishment. Friar Lawrence allowed Romeo and Juliet to get married in secret which caused conflict in the story. The feud and Friar Laurence are to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. The feud prevented Romeo and Juliet from being happily married. In Act I scene v,Juliet says, “My only love, sprung from my only hate!
Nurse should be punished. Nurse should be punished because she knew that Romeo and Juliet were married and she didn’t tell anybody about it, so that caused all of this to happen. “Is your man secret? Did you ne'er hear say, Two may keep counsel, putting one away?” (1.4.1).This shows that she new about the marriage and because of that, she should be punished because she caused Romeo and Juliet to kill herself. Also because of this it caused Lady Montague to kill herself
/ ...he is not the flower of courtesy” (40). The nurse is now saying that she thinks Juliet made the wrong choice choosing Romeo and she should have chosen her family's recommendation, Paris. After the news of Romeo being exiled is delivered to Juliet, Juliet breaks down. The nurse then tells Juliet she will “find Romeo/ to comfort [her]” (52). The nurse once again takes action to bring Romeo
Imagine a trusted counselor who betrays others by giving terrible advice. In Romeo and Juliet written by William Shakespeare, a similar situation occurs among Friar Lawrence, Romeo, and Juliet. The opposition believes that Friar Lawrence would not be responsible and it would be Romeo and Juliet’s fault due to do the several years of the hatred toward the two families. After analyzing all the information, it is Friar Lawrence’s fault for the death and Romeo and Juliet because the Friar constantly left out valuable information that he is supposed to tell Romeo or Juliet. At one point in the play, the Friar decides to turn a simple plan into something complicated that results in both Romeo and Juliet dying.
The conflict between fate and free will manifests itself through the turmoil caused by the lovers in Romeo and Juliet to go against what is expected. The two families in the play have a longstanding feud, when two children from different sides fall in love by chance. These starcrossed lovers go to extreme lengths to be together, even going against what seems to be their apparent fate of never being together. This eventually results in their demise. Their apparent fate is that they will forever love each other, but never be able to be together.
If Romeo and Juliet would kill themselves if they could not be together and on thing in the way of that is the feud then the feud is just as bad as Romeo and Juliet themselves. The first thing you hear in the play is the chorus talking about how this feud led to Romeo and Juliet's death. " From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, a pair of star-crossed lovers take their life " . Though I listed my beliefs of Romeo and Juliet's death people for some reason blame other characters or
In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia’s love for Hamlet ultimately leads to her madness. In order for Ophelia to build her relationship with Hamlet, she must go against her father’s orders considering he strictly prohibited her from seeing him. Hamlet then breaks up with Ophelia saying, “I did love you once,” and then tells her to go “to a nunnery,” causing Ophelia to feel a great amount of betrayal. Ophelia is already heartbroken, and now Hamlet murders her father which was too much for her to handle. The love Ophelia had for Hamlet was one that is considered as infatuation; Ophelia was young and did not know much about love,
Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill.”(3.1) It is the prince saying that romeo will be exiled for killing tybalt but not killed for avenging his cousin. Tybalt is the cause that Romeo was sent away. Tybalt is also the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because Juliet is then forced to marry paris so she pretends to be dead. The nurse says(unknowingly that she’s faking it)”She’s dead, deceased, she’s dead. Alack the day!”(4.5.)
An example of this is when Romeo and Juliet go to Friar Lawrence's cell to get married. He explains to Romeo that “These violent delights have violent ends / And in their triumph die, like fire and powder” (2.6.9-10). This quote relates to the thesis statement because it foreshadows the ending of how Romeo and Juliet have an end that is dramatic and lead to there death and the death of those close to them. Also when the author uses the words their triumph die it means that the pride of the Montagues and the Capulets will die as a result of Romeo and Juliet dying. Another instance is after Romeo kills Tybalt, Friar Lawrence explains the positive to his banishment and points out “A gentler judgement vanished from his lips: / Not body’s death, but body’s banishment” (3.3.11-12).
Shakespeare writes, “In one respect I’ll thy assistant be; for this alliance may so happy prove To turn your households’ to rancor to pure love” (Ⅱ.Ⅳ.90-92). The evidence shows Friar agreeing to wed the two because it could end the feud. Friar should have denied Romeo request because if they hadn’t gotten married, they could have been less overwhelmed and lived their whole life. The Friar had good intentions, but he just wasn’t realistic enough. Later in the play, Paris wanted to marry Juliet, so the parents arranged it and Juliet was not pleased.
